OK, so I experimented a little with existing books I had up, and it seems the following works:

- upload a ZIP containing cropped and deskewed TIFF, JPEG or JPEG2000 files.

- the ZIP must be named identifier_tif.zip for a collection of TIFFs

- the ZIP must contain a directory called identifier_tif

- the directory must contain files called identifier_0001.tif, identifier_0002.tif and so on

(Obviously, if you upload a different format like JPEG2000, these names differ.)

- the rest is simple: edit item -> item manager -> derive

If old files do not strictly conform to the identifier.extension, they won't get overwritten.

Just to make sure, the phrase "identifier" should of course be replaced by the actual indentifier of your project.
